You are not anonymous

I have a dilemma! My site is mainly all about computer and network security and I’m a “paranoid Pete”, I lock everything down, my fantastic Linux Smoothwall is “modded” to the hilt, I clear my browsing history automatically when I close a browser and I run CCLEANER just about everyday. However, I’m also hoping that people will visit my site and visit my “spend some money” page and then buy some antivirus or other product so that I can get a bit of commission via the affiliate marketing schemes. The dilemma is that I’ve just been talking to my son who is a web developer for a very well-known affiliate marketing company and he advises that his company and many others don’t actually need to store cookies and stuff on your computer to “track” you, they actually use something called CDI. There are a few things that you can do but it seems they are a few steps ahead of whatever you try but don’t give up, educate yourself and find out how to protect your privacy and anonymity when surfing the web. Here’s some good articles to get you going: –
